Chipper Jones Rescued Freddie Freeman on an ATV
Basically take the plot of AMC's "The Walking Dead," and replace the zombies with snow, and you have what is currently going on in Atlanta right now.
This is the opening sentence of an article posted on Weather.com: "Thousands of students across the metro Atlanta area never left school Tuesday after Winter Storm Leon dumped more than two inches of snow that paralyzed the city."
I can't picture a worse kind of hell than two inches of snow...
As this snowstorm left Atlanta in a post-apocalyptic state, many children and adults alike suffered the hardships that came along with an unexpected weather event. Cars were abandoned on the highway after sitting in traffic for hours on end and running out of gas. Over 800 accidents were reported on the roads due to conditions. All jokes aside, it was a scary scene in Atlanta.
But there was one driver who made it out alive from a seemingly endless traffic jam. After sitting for nearly six hours, stranded motorist, and Atlanta Braves first baseman, Freddie Freeman had had enough. He pulled off the highway and called in a specialist to extract him out of danger. That specialist?
None other than Chipper Jones.
Jones came in on a four-wheeler and swooped up Freeman, donning all camouflage clothing on his camo ride. The rescue operation was just another stage of Freeman's 11-hour journey home on a Tuesday.
